David Brown Gearboxes offers some of the best performance you can find but they do occasionally break down. You can call the OEM, David Brown Santasalo, directly for your gearbox repairs; but like all other OEM’s, they have an extremely long turn around time. In many cases their backlog is from 9 months to a year for a repair. That’s why we offer a comprehensive gearbox repair service.
